Players to Watch

On the Jets end of the rink, I'll be keeping an eye on Mark Scheifele tonight. He's been pretty solid out there every night, but is having a tough time getting the puck in the net. I figure he has to score sometime soon, right?

For the Islanders, keep an eye on John Tavares who's gotten 2 goals and 5 assists in the past 3 games. Tavares is playing great hockey right now and this game should be entertaining to say the least.
